Missing Her So Tanjung Tualang We Went...

My girl didn't come back for two weeks and I kind of missed her.... hahaha.. so what does a mom do when she feels like that?  Yes, I drove up to see her, forty five minutes journey only... and since it was a Sunday, there was none other better place than going to Tanjung Tualang for our lunch!  After all, it is the nearest destination where we could have a nice and proper meal.
Since it was not festive season, 
the crowd was not there to "flog" the restaurants..
That is what I like.. no crowd....
And this time we went into Sun Luen Fong Restaurant...
We had these...
Her favourite steamed fish....
fried meehoon
 
"Yau Mak" with "fermented beancurd"
crispy fried "oysters"
different shapes from the ones we normally take..
and for these dishes, (plus fried rice)
the bill came to a hefty RM93!!
I feel it is a bit "overpriced."
After our lunch, we went to buy some "cookies" and other stuff along the street... and that was it.. Dropped her back to the college after getting some groceries and bid bye-bye to her till the next weekend.....  Well, this is the life of a mother and her child who leaves home after a certain year of age...

  6. Ooooo...all the nice dishes! Slurpsss!!! ONLY 45 MINUTES!!! I sure would go over whenever I can - maybe bring something nice that she loves to eat - Japanese, Italian.... My girl will be 1 and half hours away when she starts working - she'll be home every weekend, of course...and you can be sure that I may just hop over to send her any nice things to eat whenever I can.

  8. Well, at least it only takes you 45 minutes drive. Not festive time, also so expensive. Maybe the fish & oyster cost a bomb.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
